Yea I really like the Polaris but the only draw back is the tranny & I've heard that the older polarises weren't very reliable and makes me wonder about the new ones. & the reason I want the Honda is because the reliability but the power & looks are the drawbacks on the Honda

What are you going to use it for? Trail riding or around farm= Honda anything else Polaris. The older Polaris models had trouble with the cvt trannies but the new one are almost flawless. I've rode with just about every model of atv when I had my yamaha grizzly.

All around really but I will be trail riding mostly then huntin the 2nd most and a lil bit of farm work but not much. But the trail riding I will be doing might be a lil tuff. I trail ride in the Sardis lake bottoms down in oxford ms and there r a couple pretty deep mud holes that u can't ride around to get to the lake bottoms. I'm not going to go mud boggin or anything mainly the mud flats I just don't wanna be goin through one of the mud holes an the belt start to slip on me or have to change a belt every couple hundred miles do you think that the Polaris can handle a few mud holes?

It can handle them and then some. Your belt will last for years as long as you don't put 30" tires on it and try to mud bog while in high gear. I never had to change my belt as long as had mine. When you do have to change it, it's $80 for a new belt if you do it yourself. The Rincons suspension is like the caddy of atvs which makes it ideal for trails.

I'm not brand loyal. I get what determine to be good for what I'm going to use it for. Mudding, speed, or power stay far far way from Honda. Reliability, comfort, or work horse Honda is perfect. Your gonna have people that bleed Honda, but get what suits you. I had tons of Honda people give me hell cuz I rode a yamaha, but they didn't argue as I was pulling around them in the mud holes to pull them out.

They're both good. Hondas are reliable. My dad has a polaris scrambler 500 4x4. I've got a kawasaki bayou 300 4x4.

Well I went to sign the papers on the polaris and when I got there the salesman told me that he could not sale me the bike b/c that there was a stop sale (recall) on the 850's. He said the rocker arms are getting stuck in the open position and u know what happens then. But my bro inlaw called me up and told me that he would sale me his 05 kigquad 700 for 3500 so I think I'm gonna go that route.

Suzukis are reliable. I had a 160 and even when I was like 220 that thing would still fly.
